First Person Project interviews

The next interviews for the First Person Project, a new oral history series documenting the experiences of everyday Georgians, are set for April 19 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Room 268 of the Richard B. Russell Building Special Collections Libraries.

Modeled on StoryCorps, a national initiative between National Public Radio and the Library of Congress, the First Person Project is smaller in scale but similar in concept, providing tools to would-be oral history interviewers and interviewees, including tips on how to create questions and conduct interviews.

Six sets of partners will be accepted for this First Person Project session. Each audio recording session takes one hour to complete. Photographs also will be taken for each session.

Reservations are on a first-come first-served basis and can be made by calling 706-542-5788 or registering online at
